Yocto BSP layer for the Raspberry Pi boards -

Quick links


This is the general hardware specific BSP overlay for the RaspberryPi device.

More information can be found at: (Official Site)

The core BSP part of meta-raspberrypi should work with different OpenEmbedded/Yocto distributions and layer stacks, such as:

  • Distro-less (only with OE-Core).
  • Angstrom.
  • Yocto/Poky (main focus of testing).


This layer depends on:

Quick Start

  1. source poky/oe-init-build-env rpi-build
  2. Add this layer to bblayers.conf and the dependencies above
  3. Set MACHINE in local.conf to one of the supported boards
  4. bitbake core-image-base
  5. dd to a SD card the generated sdimg file (use xzcat if rpi-sdimg.xz is used)
  6. Boot your RPI.

Quick Start with kas

  1. Install kas build tool from PyPi (sudo pip3 install kas)
  2. kas build meta-raspberrypi/kas-poky-rpi.yml
  3. dd to a SD card the generated sdimg file (use xzcat if rpi-sdimg.xz is used)
  4. Boot your RPI.

To adjust the build configuration with specific options (I2C, SPI, ...), simply add a section as follows:

  rpi-specific: |
    ENABLE_I2C = "1"
    RPI_EXTRA_CONFIG = "dtoverlay=pi3-disable-bt"

To configure the machine, you have to update the machine variable. And the same for the distro.
